-- Petroplus Holdings AG expects to stop running crude in April at its 84,800-b/d refinery at Reichstett, France, and to convert the facility into a terminal.

The company announced plans to close the refinery last year (OGJ Online, Oct. 21, 2010). It has completed a formal information and consultation process with the Reichstett Refinery Works Council.

After conversion, Petroplus will try to sell the terminal.
